Medica is the world’s largest event for the medical sector and has been established for over 40 years. It attracts over 5,100 exhibitors from over 70 countries in 17 halls, and each year continues to grow. The 2019 trade show was held at Messe Dusseldorf from the 18th – 21st November. Tens of thousands of national and international experts and decision-makers from the medical sector were in attendance, along with leading individuals from the fields of business, research, and politics.

Medica is an extensive exhibition and has a jam-packed, ambitious program which presents the entire spectrum of innovations for outpatient and clinical care. It covers the sectors of laboratory equipment and diagnostics, information and communication technology, electro-medical equipment and medical technology, commodities and consumer goods and physiotherapy and orthopaedic technology.

NeedleSmart were thrilled to have been a part of the show alongside the UK based company, Medilink. The team had the opportunity to network with hundreds of industry specialists and distributors and forge some great connections for the company going forward.

Visitors took a particular interest in the NeedleSmart Pro device, which heats a hypodermic needle to 1300°C before compressing it into a ball within a fraction of a second. The needle is then no longer sharp and is completely sterile, complying perfectly with infection prevention and control practices as well as preventing any incidence of Needle Stick Injuries (NSI’s). The NeedleSmart Pro, along with the other devices in the NeedleSmart range, also has unique data generation capabilities, meaning electronic patient record information can be updated in real-time and sharps inventory can be managed through an automatic re-ordering process.
